GNOSALL, written in Domesday Book Geneshale, remains 
(as regards its prefix) a complete puzzle for philologists. It 
is possible that the Domesdaj^ scribes blundered in their 
spelling, the early forms of the word (12th century) being 
almost invariably Gnoweshale, which later took on the similar 
spelling of Gnoushale and the like, with practically no change 
throughout the centuries. 

The PARISH included the Manors of Gnosall, Walton 
[Grange], Moreton, Knightley, Befcote and Cowlej', Wil- 
brighton, and the small estate of Burgh [or BroughJ Hall. 
Domesday Book records close upon 100 families within these 
manors. Until the close of the 12th century Blymhill was 
also included within Gnosall parish, and until recent times 
the eastern boundaries by Rule and Alston seem to have 
been indecisive. The mention of " Mr. Whitgreeves Rule " 
in the Register (Sept., 1614) is presumably intended to dis- 
tinguish the part which lay within the parish. 

Gnosall township in 1086 only had about half the popu- 
lation and one quarter of the value of the neighbouring manor 
(and parish) of Norbury, and compared still less favourably 
with the King's manors of Cowley and Befcote where the 
bulk of the population lived. Clearly the growth of Gnosall 
was due to its church, although in 1086 it had its [water] mill

THE CHURCH, (i. Its Constitution). 

There is no evidence of a Saxon church here. Domesday 
book deals with Gnosall and Penkridge jointly, stating that 
nine clerks held these manors from the King. Both places 
were of increasing value, and apparently colleges were then in 
the process of formation. But whereas the Penkridge founda- 
tion assumed the normal form of a dean and seven canons, 
the development of Gnosall was arrested. But the church 
of Gnosall has usually been termed ' ' Collegiate, " as a college 
of four canons under a titular dean, who except for patronage 
held office without emolument. From the time of Stephen 
the ' ' dean ' ' was the bishop of the diocese, and the claim 
of the crown to the advowson of the church failed in 1293. 
The endowment consisted of the manor of Gnosall which was 
divided into four portions, the profits of which went to the 
prebendaries alone. There appears to have been no common

seal, chest or chapter house, facts which led Mr. A. Hamilton 
Thompson, M.A., F.S.A. (in the Arch. Journ., 1917, pp. 
139-239), in his " Notes on Colleges of Secular Canons m 
England ' ' to call this ' ' a church of portioners rather than 
a college " (p. 182), nor does any evidence appear to con- 
tradict this assertion. 

It is not easy to say what the early constitution of the 
church was. Assuming that seven of the nine Norman canons 
were at Penkridge, two only are left for Gnosall. The bishop 
received the church of Gnosall with its prebends together with 
other Staffordshire Collegiate churches in 1140 from King 
Stephen. Actually the earliest known incumbent here was 
WilUam archdeacon of London (who occurs in 1155 as incum- 
bent of Bradley also), his patron being Bishop Roger de 
Clinton. 

Later there was Adam, priest of Gnosall in 1199 ; John 
de Gnoushale succeeded one Adam (both are called " chap- 
lains ' ') in 1223 ; while two canons appear in 1238. This 
was the period when the church on the lines which we now 
see was built. Certainly before the close of the 13th century 
the manor of Gnosall was held by four clerks from the bishop. 
Later still the prebends were named More hall, Beverley hall, 
Seukeworth (1369) or Suker Hall, and Chilterne Hall. In 
this connection the following canons should be remembered :— 
Thomas de Beverley (1223), William de Seukysworth (1278- 
1314), and Mr. Walter de Chilterne (d. 1361). 

There is every reason for believing that the Gnosall 
canons were non-resident as a rule, and that the priestly 
offices were undertaken by the four vicars choral, who were 
sometimes termed and may usuall}- have been ' ' chaplains, 
whether attached to chapels within the church or those at 
Knightley, Moreton, and Chatwell. One Leonard Harcourt, 
at an uncertain date, built a mansion house of four little 
chambers for the vicars choral, and gave them a barn for 
hay for their horses and four butts of land in Gnosall. This 
remained in 1549. The appropriation of ' ' college ' ' and 
prebends to the bishop came about by letters patent of 
Henry VIH. 

After the Reformation the church became a perpetual 
curacy in the gift of the bishop. 

In the later churchwardens' accounts two examples are 
given of this process : 1674 " payd. 2d. for bringing us a 
letter from the Bushshap that Mr. Aston must be our Curate " ; 
1702 " Pd. 3-0 to the Bishop's Butler when we went to petition 
his Lordship for an able minister."

THE CHURCH, (ii. Its Edifice.) 

Gnosall church was dedicated to St. Laurence. It is 
architecturally of very great interest, and as recent repairs 
have been conservatively executed (the north transept still 
remains untouched) it is possible to observe the work of 
different periods rather easier than is usually the case. 

The church is cruciform with a central to\^'er, built of 
a whitish sandstone. The tower arches form its most striking 
feature, exhibiting massive supports and the bold carving 
of the late Norman period. Tliere is an interesting arcade 
in the south transept surmounted with a triforium passage 
of the same date. There was a chapel to the east of this 
transept at an early date. Carved string courses .show that 
the 12th century chancel extended two bays only. There 
is nothing in these features inconsistent with a daU after 
1 140 when the bishop was given the church. Donbtle.ss 
building operations were due to him. 



iv. Staffordshire Parish Registers. 

The nave was originally without aisles. Behind the 
pulpit is an arch which is a subject for some speculation but 
may represent part of a walled-up window in the original 
north wall. The west wall has a small door and three lancet 
windows above of Early English work. Indeed, at a com- 
paratively early date, the nave, by no means large, must 
have become all too small, and the north and south aisles 
were added earl}^ in the 13th century. In the 14th century 
the chancel was extended to the east, as was also the south 
chapel. This part of the church thus became particularly 
roomy. The clerestory of the nave and the tower were 
formed in the 15th century. Above the chancel arch can 
be seen marks of the slope of the previous roof. 

In the north transept a shallow chapel was made to the 
east in the late Perpendicular period, with corner buttresses 
which have proved far from efficient. From, the coats of 
arms recorded as existing in 1680 in window glass hereabouts, 
this was apparently a Peshall family chapel. In the will of 
Robert Sutton of 1517 a chapel of St. Katherine is mentioned, 
but no hint is given as to its situation. 

South-east of the chancel is situated the one monument 
of the church. It represents a man in armour of the Yorkist 
period (1460-85) on an elevated tomb. Possibly once his 
ladj^ 's effigy lay in the vacant space beside him. The bawdric 
(or belt) and feet resting on a lion (instead of the later dog) 
are both early tendencies. The tomb is therefore not likely 
to be later than 1470. There seems to be a tradition that it 
represented a ' ' Baron Brough ' ' who was the last to kill 
a wolf in Staffordshire, the event occurring in a pit hole near 
Brough Hall. Needless to say there was no such person as 
baron Brough, but the apparent confusion with the owner 
of Brough Hall marks him a Knightlej^ It is not clear what 
Knightley died at this date. 

Built into the east wall are two early stone coffin lids. 
In the north wall of the chancel is a round-arched recess 
which was probably used as an Easter Sepulchre. 

It will be noticed that several of the windows of the 
nave and elsewhere are of a later period than the wall in M'hich 
they are set. In the chancel a certain amount of uniformity 
was brought about by this process. 

The font and pulpit are modern, as is the reredos which 
was formerly in Eccleshall church. In the south transept 
had lately been set the ancient chest bound with iron. It is 
in fair condition but has been shortened a foot or so. There 
are a few fragments of ancient glass and no modern glass 
except that of the east window dedicated in 1922 as a memorial 
of the War.

THE CHURCHWARDENS' ACCOUNT BOOK. 
The Churchwardens' Accounts date only from 1669. 
In this volume will be found a copy of a List of Proprietors 
of Seats in the church of 1639 > also a list of churchwardens 
from 1669-1737. In 1672 the following goods were in their 
custody :— " A Crane for Building, A greate Lather, A Church 
Bible, A Communion Booke, a Hom.ily Booke, A Regester 
booke, Juell and Harding with other small bookes, A Sirplice, 
A Carpett cS: Couer for the Communion Table, A pulpit Cussioni 
A silver Cupp & Couer of silver. Two Great Guns, one Flagon] 
One Bason. " 

Subsequent lists (from 1692) include two register books, 
tvv^ old books of Ch : Wardens accounts, one book of Canons, 
one hearse cloth, one napkin & one wallett, while the church 
plate has altered to a silver cup and paten. In fact the 
' ' two large pewter gunns ' ' had not prevented sacrilege in 
1692, when 8d. was ' ' payd to Messengers that tooke Notes 
to severall Churches to be published after the robbing of our 
Church. " So it comes about, then, that the oldest Commiunion 
service plate dates from 1692, of which the paten, the gift 
of Mrs. Ann Doody, provides the only known example of the 
Chester Hall marks of that year. 

There are many payments for work on the church roof 
and shingles for it, culminating (1682-3) in a complete re- 
casting and re-laying of the lead. The bells also needed 
reconditioning one by one ; but in 1674 it was found necessary 
to renew the timber bell-frame. Large payments were made 
to 'squire Skrymshire for oaks from Norbury manor for this 
purpose, the churchwardens having vainly searched for 
suitable trees nearer at hand. 

An appeal for funds was made to the parishioners and 
' ' loving neighbours ' ' in March, 1700, it being found that 
three of the bells were not turnable and the clock would not 
' ' go trew 12 hours. ' ' A treble bell was also needed (to make 
six) and there was a desire for chimes. A valuable list of 
over 250 subscribers is given, the sum collected being £58 
OS. 5d. We further learn that the bell, which weighed cwt. 
and cost £42, was made by the Rudhalls of Gloucester and 
came by water to Bridgnorth. £12 was paid to Francis 
Payne for the " Chvmes." There was talk of employing 
the balance of the money ' ' towards the building of the Free 
schoolhouse and gallery''in our Church," but nothing came 
of this. Curiously enough this new bell no longer hangs at 
Gnosall. It was probably removed in 1784, the exisang bell 
bearing that date. Number 4 is ancient and has the niscrip-

THE MANOR %)ersus PARISH. 

There seems to have been very little freehold at Gnosall. 
The lords of the Manor were the fovu- prebendaries, and the 
manor, as has been stated already, was divided into four 
parts bearing the names of the prebends : Beverley Hall, 
Chilterne Hall, Suker or Seukewor';h Hall, and Morehall. 
After the Reformation the manorial portions were for con- 
venience farmed to one of the local gentry, whether a Knightley 
Whitgreave, Harcourt or other. Erdeswick says : ' ' Since 

the dissolution the prebends' lands came first 

leased to Sir George Blount, Knt. (who gave the same to 
Draper and two others of his servants) ' ' with reversion to 
the Bishop. 

Certain of the manor rolls are in existence (once Rev. 
Dr. Cox's, now Dr. Dent's, of Wolverhampton), They date 
from 1448 and a portion is set out in some detail by N. J. 
Hone in The Manor (Antiquary's Books, Chap, vi.) 

Besides the four Courts Baron of the prebendaries, there 
was the more important Court Leet with its View of Frank- 
pledge. The first dealt with the usual manorial customs 
and offences, the latter with the lesser breaches of the Common 
or Statute Law. The Gnosall Court Rolls provide examples 
of affrays against the peace : against the assize of ale and 
bread (the former could not be sold in Gnosall in 1592 for 
more than 4d. a gallon !) : unlawful gaming : the menaces 
of scolds and drunkards : the blocking of some pathways 
and the opening up of others : theft : the washing of hemp 
in the Gnosall brooks. 

The executive apparently consisted of a Constable, 
several headboroughs, and two surveyors of hedges. There 
were four headboroughs (or tithing men) for Gnosall, and 
one each for Coton, Chatwall and doubtless other townships. 
These came before the court with their complaints and the 
offender was generally subjected to various fines. 

There must have been considerable overlapping of ofhce- 
holding by the time the manorial and parochial officers were

Annually one of the chief payments of the churchwardens 
was for the Dinner for the Officers and Jurors, held at the 
time of the Easter visitation of the Registrar and Apparitor, 
when also the election of officers took place. 

One of the chief duties of the parish officers was the 
levying of ' ' lewnes ' ' or church rates. This assessment was 
made on two classes of property : ' ' Hollowers ' ' and Cottages, 
the former being privileged to pay double. In the Church- 
wardens ' accounts for 1675 there is " a Copy of all the Hollowers 
and Cottages of the other parte of the parish I cyond the water that

BROUGH HALL. 

Brough Hall or Burgh Hall was probably the Biighale of 
Domesday, which is stated to have ' ' belonged to Halstone. ' ' 
It was a comparatively small estate lying between Gnosall 
and Ranton, and Hahione may have been the Alston which 
with Brough and Rule were for civil purposes taken together 
in the 17th century (S.H.C., iqig, pp. 138, 221). But Halstone 
may have been Haughton, another manor of Robert de 
Stafford's adjoining. Burgh Hall certainly was in the 
possession of the Stafford family as early as 1150 when it 
was granted with Ranton and Cooksland to the Noel family. 
This grant was coniirmed by the then Robert de Stafford in 
c. 1181-4. (S.H.C. IL, 219, 256.) It seems probable that 
Philip de Burgn, the first who took his name from this place, 
was a Noel (? the same as Philip brother of Thomas Noel of 
Ranton). He lived in the time of Henry II. and John, 
married one Alice and was father of Bertram de Burgh who 
married Elisande of Little Onn (living 1253). Bertram was 
dead in 1219, leaving a son and heir, Bertram, a minor. This 
Bertram, who was living 1271, was the father of William de 
Burgh (living 1305, 1324) who married Joan de Cowley. He 
was also lord of Apeton and part of Wilbrighton. He was 
the father of Adam de Burgh whose daughter and heir Elizabeth 
married John Knightley of Gnosall, Shusions, &c., a descend- 
ant of a younger son of Robert Knightley III. This marriage 
set the fortunes of this family of Knightley (which has often 
been confused with that of the older branch) on a firm footing 
with Burgh Hall as their home. John Knightley was M.P. 
for the County and died in 1413. He was father of John 
Knightley, also M.P., and (1403) Justice of Chester, whose 
elder brother Richard, of Gnosall, was the father of Richard 
Knightley, who bought Fawsley in 1416 and died there in 
1443. It is not necessary to follow the members of this 
family further, as Burgh Hall was a secondary dwelling place 
for younger sons. It was so occupied by Thomas Knightley 
(a third son) who was living in 1619, aged 78, whose eldest 
son Richard (b. 1584) appears in the parish register from 
1614 to 1619. Previous to 1600 it was apparently leased to 
Robert Harcourt, a natural son of Robert Harcourt, of 
Ranton. The Knightleys of Burgh Hall eventually succeeded 
to the greater house at Fawsley, when (it may be supposed) 
Burgh or Brough Hall took a lower status. In 1680 it was 
occupied by Ralph Smart as ' ' tenant to Lady Knightley. ' ' 
The present building (a farm house) would appear to date 
from the first years of che eighteenth century. Only the old 
moat remains which is rectangular, measuring 160 x 100 
yards, enclosing an area over 3 acres in extent. The property 
is now Lord Lichfield's.

CHATWELL (or Chatwall). 
Chatwell (now part of Moreton) lies far to the south of 
Gnosall church. Its inhabitants often found it convenient 
to use Blymhill church ; but formerly there was a chapel 
of ease here, which however did not survive the Reformation. 
In 1680 the chapel was noted as ' ' disused. " It is now said 
to form part of a barn. There is a " St. Chad's well " at 
this place, but of dubious antiquity ; and as an explanation 
of the place-name this should be looked upon with suspicion. 
During the period covered by the Register the families of 
Congreave and Ames dwelt here. Richard Ames the noted 
curate of Bilston (1684-1730) was of this place, as was Dr. 
Thomas Congreave of Wolverhampton (d. 1720). 

The SNOWDON Myth. 

There seems to be a persistent tradition that Snowdon 
is visible in favourable weather from this parish, notably 
from Broadhill and Knightley. This is probably traceable 
to Pitt's Topographical History where (p. 271) it is stated 
that the mountain ' ' was once seen by an observer in a clear 
winter 's morning, in a direction beyond Chetwynd Park ..." 
This, of course, is not the right direction for Snowdon, which 
in any case it is physically impossible to see from Gnosall, 
being blocked by the Berwyn and Llangollen mountains. 
Possibly the observer saw the Cader Idris range ; but ' ' Snow- 
don " is probably Bwndd Arthur (2,568ft.) near Llandrillo. 

KNIGHTLEY. 

Knightley is Chenistelei in Domesday Book, and was 
held by Rainald, the Norman baron of Bailleul from Earl 
Roger de Montgomery. But Rainald held many manors, 
and it is unlikely that he visited still less lived at Knightley, 
and as he is known to have died without issue, it is impossible 
that he founded the family of that name. This family cannot 
with certainty be traced earlier than Nicholas (surnamed 
Maucovenant) who held Knightley by the service of a casde 
guard at Oswestry, whose son Robert flourished from 1180-90. 
Jordan of Knightley follows Robert and another Robert 
follows Jordan. His son, Robert III., served with Ralph 
Basset, of Drayton, who died at Evesham. It is hkely 
therefore that the paly coat of Knightley was adapted from 
the Basset arms. Robert IV. of Knightley was summoned 
in 1 301 to follow his King against the Scots with horse and 
arms. He married Alice, daughter of Sir John Doyley of 
Ranton, heir to her brother Henry Doyley of Cowley. He 



X. Staffordshire Parish Registers. 

was M.P. for Staffordshire and died in 1327 ; she died in 
;he plague year of 1349. Their son, Robert V., is a Knight 
with lands in four counties, who, dying about 1365, leaves 
a son. Sir John Knightley, the last male of the direct line of 
Knightleys. His daughter Joan married Roger Peshall, and 
their daughter, another Joan who married William Lee, a 
lawyer, conveyed linightley to her cousin Richard Peshall. 
She survived her husband and died in 1451. Richard Peshall 
' ' of Knightley ' ' was dead in 1458, and was succeeded by 
his son Humphrey, who was probably M.P., 1484, also " of 
Knightley." He married twice and died in 1498. His son 
and heir, Sir Hugh Peshall (d. 1490 and buried at Grey Friars, 
London), had issue an only daughter Catherine, who married 
Sir John Blount of Kinlet, Salop. Their daughter Elizabeth 
Blount was mistress of King Henr}^ VIII. and mother of 
Henry, Duke of Richmond (1519-1536). 

The manor house has long since disappeared. Its site 
and that of the chapel probably lay on the road which leads 
through the fields to Knightley Hall farm. The first field 
(that behind the blacksmith 's shop) is known as ' ' Chapel 
Field " or " Yard ' ' ; but this name can only apply to 
part of it for several former hedgerows can be traced. Oppo- 
site (to the south) in a ploughed field can be seen an acre 
or so of dark earth (the bulk of the field being sandy) ; tradition 
calls this ' ' the garden. ' ' Towards the road to Gnosall is a 
wall of stone, evidently a relic of the stones from the house 
or chapel. A burial in Jan., 1605-6 points to the graveyard 
still being in use. 

The present chapel of ease was built on a different site 
in 1840, and added to in 1882. 

MORETON. 

In 1086, Moreton (Mortone) was the holding of a soldier 
(miles), an Angle, and some lesser men. There was also a 
mill worth i6d. From soldier or Angle possibly descended 
Hemming de Moreton of 1166, probably the ancestor of a 
family of that name who acquired property in the adjoining 
manor of Wilbrighton in 1330. Hither they moved their 
seat and there Erdeswick states ' ' one Moreton .... hath 
builded a proper gentleman 's house of brick. ' ' 

The last of this branch of the family were Thomas Moreton 
(d. 1582) and Adam Moreton (d. 1614), both figuring in the 
Register as Esquires, father and son. The succession passed 
to the Moretons of Engleton in the parish of Brewood, from 
whom were descended the Earls of Ducie, who are also Lords 
Moreton. 



Gnosall. xi. 

There was once a chapel at Moreton ; but it had fallen 
into disuse before the Reformation. Gregory King visiting 
the place in 1680, notes twenty-five houses and ' ' a Chapel 
demolished. ' ' 

The church of St. Mary was built in 1837, and the parish 
of Moreton (including the hamlets of Bromstead, Coley, 
Outwoods, Chatwell, and Wilbrighton) was formed in 1845. 



WALTON GRANGE. 

This extra-parochial estate was in Domesday called 
Waltone and belonged to Roger, Earl of Shrewsbury, being 
held from him by Roger [de Lacy]. In the time of Henry IL, 
Walter, son of Heremann, gave Walton to Buildwas Abbey, 
whose " grange " it became. It subsequently was owned 
by the Gifford family. 

THE INHABITANTS. 

The parish register yields the names of a considerable 
number of gentry, and the following occur ;• — John Harecourt,

Bing, 1655. M^- J'^hn Blakeman, schoolmaster, died in 
1626, a date considerably earlier than the memoranda of the 
school charities (c. 1650") when William Cotton was school- 
master. 

Of lesser families there were the Talbots of Moreton and 
Cowley ; the Astleys of Cowley and Coton, the Yestops (or 
Easthopes) of Chatwell ; the Davenhills, Selmans, and 
Barrets ; the Barnfields of Knightley, to name only a few. 

The most curious names are those of Halfhead and 
Swineshead (the latter dignified into Swincheheade in 1623), 
both being derived from hamlets near Eccleshall. The 
Christian name ' ' Thomasine ' ' is here abundantly conmiou. 



xii. Sta^ordshire Parish Registers. 

Valentine Vicars who occurs Jan., 1655-6, must be 
about the ninth in ascent of the present and youngest Valentine 
Vickers, who follows the ancient precedent to bear that name. 



The best thanks of tite Society are due to Miss Ethel Stokes 
for transcribing the Marriage portion of the Register, to Mr. 
Gerald P. Mander for the transcription of the remainder and 
the preparation of the introductory notice, and to the Rev. jfohn 
Child Bocking for giving access to the Register. 



®no5all f arislj K^gister. 



NOTE. —The early Gnosall Register takes rather a curious form. The 
main portion consists of 40 leaves of vellum measuring about 2ft. 6in. long and 
7in. in breadth. Being thus of an inconvenient size it has been folded across 
(roughly) in the centre. This bundle is supplemented by four similar sized 
gatherings of four leaves each, one of ten and one of eleven leaves (and a frag- 
ment). This takes the record to March, 1700. 

The register contains mixed entries from which the Marriages were separately 
copied " by Miss Stokes for Mr. Turner " in and before December, 1904, and 
afterwards set up in type. For this reason the marriages have been here printed 
apart. Miss Stokes' copy has been again checked with the original up to 1700. 
It proves to have been on the whole very accurate. Certain omissions and doubtful 
readings have, however, been rectified and a few instances of the curious phrase 
" now his wife " in the 1590 period have been inserted. The parishes of the 
parties to a marriage are seldom given in the earlier period, and the copy has 
usually omitted mention of Gnosall in the later. It may be assumed, however, 
that one or more of the parties were " of this parish." 

In the case of the Baptisms and Burials it will be observed that the form 
of entry (until 1602) repeats the surname. The original copyist seems to have 
taken pride in diversifying the spelling as much as possible. In the abbreviated 
form in which the entries are printed certain alternative spellings are given 
within brackets. While the spelling of the surnames has been (with the above 
exceptions) carefully preserved, that of the commoner Christian names (which 
differs considerably under different curates) has not been closely followed. 
The name Francis is spelt the same for both man and woman, audit is often impos- 
sible to be certain (in burials) which gender is intended. Subject to this, the 
feminine form has been printed with an e. 

The original transcript (which was not made in a week) was apparently 
finished in December, 1599. This and other changes are duly noted in their 
proper places.
